Additive Manufacturing – An industrial revolution

Additive manufacturing has come of age and we’ve been enthusiastically involved in a project that’s bringing it several steps closer to maturity. Additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D printing as it’s often known, first emerged some decades ago, but in recent years it has started to enter the mainstream. The latest techniques and supporting technologies mean

Improving OEE as Pay-per-use? Yes!

Philipp Osterwalders post on “how to connect a machine in just 4 hours” is an impressive report on pace in Industry 4.0 projects. The use case he shared with us is on Filter Monitoring. The implementation site of the project is at Bosch Rexroth plant in Homburg. About 25 percent of failure costs for long-term

Hydraulics with IO-Link: Reduced effort, high value

In almost all industries, machine users require increased flexibility for production means for small batches and continuous diagnostics of all actuators and sensors to increase availability. In addition to this, there is quickly increasing horizontal and vertical connection of machinery and systems for Industry 4.0 applications. The open standard IEC 61131-9, IO-Link, fulfills these requirements

Servo Presses

Energy management for Servo Presses

Energy management is a crucial part of every servo press. At the EuroBLECH 2016, Bosch Rexroth demonstrated electro-hydraulic drive concepts with innovative potentials in this field. Within our cooperation with Bosch Rexroth, we have created an augmented reality application illustrating the groundbreaking energy concept of the forming machine. This way, we demonstrate the energetic coupling

Elektrohydraulische Pumpenregelung HPC von Rexroth

Pump control – simple or intelligent?

Control pumps have a fixed place in hydraulics. Your advantage: They only provide as much flow and/or power as is required for the specified movement task. But which pump control  is suitable for which application? Mechanical-hydraulic or electro-hydraulic pump control? What are the differences? The advantages and disadvantages of the two pump control types can

Pump control: Which is the right one?

With or without control cabinet ? Intelligent or simple hydraulic pump control? This selection guide should heplu you to find the right  pump control.  Automation experts agree: In increasingly cross-linked production environments on the way to Industry 4.0, remote smart drives will be the solution of the future. Provided that they are able to communicate

Power Units 4.0

Hydraulic power units 4.0

Future hydraulic power units will differ fundamentally from the assemblies we are accustomed to today. With its own intelligence and sensor technology, the latest generation already increased flexibility, energy efficiency and availability through condition monitoring. Simultaneously, the design has been changed to an extent previously not imaginable. The latest hydraulic power units are encapsulated, and

elektrohydraulishce Linearachsen

Self contained linear axis – the assemblies

Ideal combination of hydraulics and electrics The self-contained hydraulic assemblies combine a servo drive with a hydraulic pump, a control block and hydraulic cylinders as well as safety valves and sensors to an axis with ist own fluid circuit. Differentiation self contained linear axis from conventional hydraulics Completely ready-to-install and maintenance-free SHAs offer users with

Electro hydraulic drives: The Fitness program

Electro hydraulic drives: Made in heaven

Jake Mitchell of Bosch Rexroth highlights the role of electro hydraulic solutions in modern industrial applications. Established for more than 200 years as an efficient and convenient way of delivering power to a myriad of industrial applications, hydraulic systems today remain at the heart of industrial processes across an enormous spectrum of sectors. The advantages
